Sub-Saharan African governments have combined political will with positive action to get girls and boys into school and provide them with a quality education.  The benefits of investing in education in the region are evident and the results are tangible. There is still a very long way to go, 30 million of the world's 58 million out-of-school, primary age children live in Sub-Saharan Africa. 

Education is critical for development and helps lay the foundations for social well-being, economic growth and security, gender equality and peace. Prosperous countries depend on skilled and educated workers.

Every child has the right to go to school. Samsung's Internet Schools Program makes use of mobile devices, e-boards, and educational software for K-12 education and the best part of the learning experience is the devices are solar powered.

Samsung's Solar Powered Internet Schools Program in Africa provides a technology rich learning and teaching environment to K-12 classrooms across five countries in Africa as a pilot program.  

Samsung's solar powered internet schools are located in South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal and Sudan. From 2012-2015 Samsung's goal was to reach 2.5 million children by addressing a common resource challenge faced by rural African communities, access to affordable and reliable electricity. Education helps protect workers from exploitation by increasing their opportunities.
